Bees are vegetarian, hymenopteran, and foraging insects. This is how bees collect propolis, nectar, pollen, and honeydew in the wild. By foraging, bees also ensure pollination (the transport of pollen), which allows plants to reproduce.
Bee has a hairy body of about 5/8″ (15.88 mm) long. The honey bee feeds on pollen, nectar, and produces honey. Its stinger is located at the end of the abdomen. It has a characteristic yellow and brown striped tinge and a much stockier body than the wasp.
You will not usually see it on the edge of your plate because it is not interested in our food. Vegetarians do not belong to the group of predatory insects. Bees do not attack and are not aggressive. It only stings as a last resort if it feels threatened.
After stinging and dropping its stinger on its attacker, it dies. Bees are useful insects. However, they are a danger when they build their nests near or in houses. Its life span can vary from one to eight months, depending on the season. It should also be noted that the bumblebee, a pacifist insect, is a particular kind of bee.
Bees can be distinguished from bumble bees by their size: the latter has similar habits but are rounder and often more significant. Wasps, on the other hand, are slim in size, often have less hair, and their larvae are not vegetarian. As a result, species whose appearance is similar to that of flies or mosquitoes are commonly referred to like bees.
